“The first issue of the “P2P and Innovation” (“Revista P2P & INOVAÇÃO”) magazine in Brazil has just been launched. The magazine brings together eight articles, which are the result of the course Michel Bauwens, founder of the P2P Foundation, ministered in Brazil in November 2012. During the course – made possible through a partnership between the Brazilian Institute of Information in Science and Technology (IBICT) and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) – Bauwens discussed with the students the collaborative practices around the world based on open knowledge, peer production and the commons.
At the end of the course, the Collaborative Economy and P2P Production Research Group in Brazil was constituted, aiming to promote the ethical, political and academic debate around the collaborative practices of peer production and the commons.
The “P2P and Innovation” magazine is published twice a year (biannual) and is linked to the “Collaborative Economy and P2P Production Research Group in Brazil” from IBICT. Its mission is to offer a space for reflection and debate about all sorts of experiences in collaborative production among pairs with focus on innovation in culture, social and political environment.
The 8 articles can be accessed at the following link.
